YouTube video

Several beaches around St. Petersburg and Tampa are closed due to harmful algal bloom (red tide) after the passage of Hurricane "Elsa," Live Storms Media noted in their latest video report.

The National Weather Service has issued a special beach hazards statement warning of the effects on people's respiratory system through Monday evening, July 12.

As seen in the video, thousands of fish that have been killed are floating to the shore.

Around 120 employees have been taken from their normal jobs to assist in 24-hour a day cleanup efforts.

15-tons and counting of dead fish have been removed so far, according to the City of St. Petersburg.
